Does Nasdaq offer dental insurance?

Pros

Lots of great, smart, nice people work here. Good work-life balance for most people & opportunity to work from home. Overall good benefits, including 401K match, 3 weeks vacation, sick days, (but only 12 weeks of maternity leave), several health insurance options, dental & visual insurance, tuition assistance, relaxed dress code, free fruits & beverages. The CEO, Adena, is very enthusiastic about making a company a better place and transform it to fintech firm. She has a good vision about the company’s future and works hard to achieve it. Great and well recognized brand.

Cons

The pay is low, much lower than for the same positions at other firms and it hardly increases over the years even if you get assigned more responsibilities. The company tries to save money on employees and some departments are understaffed, which makes it difficult or sometimes impossible to deliver projects on time. It is very difficult to move professionally around the company, get promoted or grow, especially if you are a woman. Significant domination of white male employees from middle to executive management levels - women seem to not get promoted, although get hired equally and retained on entry level positions. Middle management has no clue what they are doing, do not have the same vision as the CEO, and often not supportive of their teams. Many of them do the functional job themselves forgetting about their managerial (Leadership) responsibilities. Promotions and changes happen only on the executive level, even when somebody leaves the firm, the senior management and the c-suite move around, middle and entry levels only experience increase in responsibilities without pay increase and promotions. Lots of unproductive, time wasting meetings with managers who has no idea what they are doing.

Advice to Management

Increase & encourage cross-team collaboration; there are a lot of systems and technology within the firm that can be useful and beneficial for different departments but employees are not aware of that (including management). Do not hire/promote people without leadership skills to managerial positions when they need to manage junior employees. Make the pay competitive, promote and recognize people.
